======== STOP THE "GRAND BARGAIN" -- IT'S A TURKEY! ==========================

*Monday, November 26, 2012, 12:00 pm*
*Downstairs from Sen. John Kerry's office, Cambridge St and New Chardon St,  

President Obama and Republicans are bargaining to cut the deficit. But they  
shouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of ordinary people, who didn’t  
cause the problems. *Stop the fiscal swindle!  *

On November 7, the people of 91 Massachusetts cities and towns passed the  
/Budget for All [1]/by a 3 to 1 margin [2].  It calls for budget principles  
that will put people back to work, fight climate change, rebuild our economy  
for the future, and stop endless wars, while balancing the budget:

• Stop the cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment  
benefits, housing, food and veterans’ benefits

• Invest in jobs in manufacturing, schools, housing, renewable energy,  
transportation and public services

• Close corporate tax loopholes, end offshore tax havens, and raise taxes  
on incomes over $250,000

• Reduce the military budget, end the war in Afghanistan and bring troops  
home safely now

/Join tenants, community and faith leaders, peace activists, and the Grand  
Turkey at a rally! Bring appropriate props and costumes (turkeys, billionaire  
suits, musical instruments, signs and banners) -- and tell us in advance that  
you'll be there! Register to attend  
at /*/justicewithpeace.org/grand-turkey-register [3]/*/! //We will gather  
in front of Senator Kerry’s office to deliver a letter, and then march to  
Senator Brown’s nearby office.  *Tell our elected officials to r**eject  
the "grand bargain" – it’s a turkey!*/

Sponsored by the Budget for All Coalition [4], Massa­chusetts Peace Action
